This membership-based, do-it-yourself facility provides the public with tools, equipment, training and a vibrant, supportive community of creative people.

What are the benefits? As a member, you will have:
- Access to over $1 million dollar’s worth of advanced machines and tools and sophisticated design software.
- A $100 voucher to spend on TechShop workshops, which teach you how to use prototyping equipment.
- Access to a community of inventors, tinkerers, hobbyists, entrepreneurs, and people just like you!
